Growing Green Manure
West Sussex, United Kingdom
Acquired a small piece of land recently, for growing veggies on, although we have planted [in late June] our excess of brassica seedlings and other crops, a little late, I know, but nothing ventured, nothing gained. There are potatoes on a section that are ready to lift and I would like to plant green manure there for next year's crops.
What's the best way / time of doing this as I keep reading that once the gren manure plants have grown and been dug it, it is recommended to plant the intended crops quite soon or the nutrients leach out? Was hoping to sow/grow/dig in and overwinter, ready for planting next Spring.
